Should I change the plugin template to be a .vit file?

The template for creating a Quick Drop Keyboard Shortcut plugin VI is here:

LabVIEW 20xx\resource\dialog\QuickDrop\QuickDrop Plugin Template.vi

Should I make this VI a template (.vit) instead?  I have the path to this VI hard-coded in a few places in Quick Drop that I would need to change. Other than that, would making this VI a .vit instead of a .vi adversely affect any of you?

Nope, I think it would make a lot more sense as a template since it is exactly that, and you'd be less likely to accidentally overwrite the original.  I'd even say it should be added to the File > New... dialog, but that's probably a more complex change than just renaming it to .vit.
